    The hostel was super clean with very nice grounds amd extraordinarily helpful and cheerful staff. I can't think of anything to improve except the possibility of a room fan on one of the rare Interlaken hot days in summer. In summary, highly recommended!

    Great location, great facilities (giant kitchen, cheap laundry). Super clean and very secure (room key works for lockers). It's huge with lots of great common areas. Free breakfast is always a plus. Only things that could be improved is if they had curtains on the bunks and if the bathrooms were a bit bigger, but overall this is a great hostel.

    This is truly one of the nicest, if not, the nicest hostel I’ve ever stayed at. There is a breakfast, free storage, you’re provided a towel, the vending machine sells tokens for the laundry, drying is free, and the view of Jungfrau is to die for. When I next come to Interlaken, I’ll be staying here.

    Backpackers hostel is really amazing and everything there gives you an impression like you are between your family. Location is in central of interlaken but it is a bit far from train station like 15 minutes walking, Room is nice with a secured locker for each one, Breakfast is basic but acceptable, you can find toast, jam, butter, juice and coffee. Staff is so helpful, friendly & kind, their smile makes your day, they provide any support you need, No AC in rooms, No shower gel in shower room

    Extremely clean and modern hostel. Good facilities including a coffee machine and breakfast that done proper espresso’s. Showers and toilets all look new, spacious and clean. Rooms are small with nowhere to place your case but you do get a locker in the room with keycard lock which is a bonus. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Kitchen area really good. Atmosphere doesn’t seem like a place you can meet other solo/travellers as easy as most hostels. So many areas to sit makes it harder to meet people I fe

    Great place. Great location and staff. Loved the included morning breakfast. Wasn’t very social and a tad outdated. Have no complaints though.
